This is an interesting use of APEX at Gokhan Atil's Oracle Blog: How to Automate Startup/Shutdown of Oracle Database on Linux


The Oracle Solaris Cluster Oasis let's us know that Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 5/11 is announced


The PeopleSoft Technology Blog weighs in on AppDesigner Enhancements (in PeopleTools 8.52).


In part two of his article, Kevin Closson apologizes up front for the length of his article. Well I'm not against piling on, so I'll add that the title is too long as well: I Can See Clearly Now. Exadata Is Better Than EMC Storage! I Have Seen The Slides! Part II. SuperCluster Storage? Just try printing that on a matchbox!

The Ron Batra Blog: Technology Directions, has some good thoughts on juicing up Facebook (and other such large social networks and demanding HA apps, Second Life, are you guys reading this?): Facebook's Database Architecture: Think ExaData; Exalogic ?

Data Warehousing

The Data Warehouse Insider tries to answer one of the questions that has troubled humanity for ages (well, for a few years, anyway): Is Parallelism married to Partitioning? I would add: Does Clustering know about the Marriage?

Also in the realm of EBS this week, Chris Warticki's Blog - Oracle Support announces: FREE E-Bus Accounts Payables Support Webcast


With a new version of MOS come discussions of improvements, problems, etc.. Here's a place to read about some of those discussions and join the conversation, the OraJourn blog: MOS 5.3: Search and Knowledge .


At the blog Achieving Great BI With Oracle BI there is a posting that has the prospect of being an important concept in BI. See what you think: Prototyping with OBI .


Tanel Poder is in the midst of writing the much awaited book we mentioned previously on the Infogram, but sent at least a posting to a posting update on his blog. He recommends reviewing Cary Millsap's seminal article: Mastering Performance with Extended SQL Trace
